What Must a Jew Believe? with David Gottlieb

October 21, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm

  • This event has passed.

Does Judaism require a system or series of beliefs? If so, what are they? If not, then is Judaism a religion, or is it something else? We’ll explore this topic through biblical, rabbinic, and medieval text, and through contemporary scholarship. While we may not agree on conclusions, we can develop a deeper understanding of the way Judaism grapples with belief as a way of seeing and being in the world.

Member fee $25, or included in Friday morning package; non-member fee $35.
